It's been some time since I wrote a Signature Sundays post here on the blog, but I've got a real nice autograph to feature today. It's the latest in my quest to collect as many of the 1992-93 Fleer Ultra buybacks from the 2016-17 Fleer Showcase set as possible, and it features one of the most successful players in NHL history, Mark Messier!
I'm really glad to add this Rangers autograph to my collection in particular, as I went on a trip to New York City with my dad in the summer of 1994 to see the Red Sox and Yankees play at the old Yankee Stadium. The Rangers had just won The Cup and the city was rabid for the team and its captain, Messier. I still remember going on a tour of Madison Square Garden that trip, and purchasing a Stanley Cup Champion souvenir puck. I'll always think back to that when I look at this card. Good memories.
With Messier in hand, I've got five of these autographs and counting
now, though they obviously don't crop up all that often with only 25 of
each in existence. I'm not sure how many more I'll stumble across, but I sure do love this one.
Thanks for stopping by!
